The post-apocalyptic thriller is followed by Vikings, which generated near nine million expressions and Touche Pas, a French daily news show, which generated 8.2 million.

Kids’ TV hit Dragon Ball Super arrived in fourth place, topping Grey’s Anatomy, Game of Thrones and The 100, which followed in fifth, sixth and seventh place respectively.

La Casa de Papel arrived in eighth place. It is followed by the special 22nd season of the French version of Survivor (Koh-lanta), which gained slightly more demand than the BBC’s Peaky Blinders.
